Fall into Autumn with High Hopes!

We are back from our summer vacation with High Hopes Challenge #43, Fall in Autumn. I have two cards to share from the new released images from High Hopes. The first is this adorable Pilgrim Pair. They are so sweet and friendly-join them won't you? The are stamped on Neenah Solar Crest White Ultra Smooth cardstock and colored with Copics. The other cardstock is both PTI and Bazzill. The design paper is from Fancy Pants. I used a Spellbinder tag die to make the Happy Thanksgiving tag, sponged it, and added some PTI ribbon.


This next image is the large turkey from High Hopes...isn't he cute! Make's you want to have tofurkey for Thanksgiving right? No, me neither... Anyway, he was stamped and colored twice and just his body cut out and popped up over the main image.

I stamped him on the same paper as the pilgrims and also used Copics to color him up. I also used the Oak Corner and Oak Border as accents. I love those! The cardstock here is Prism and the design paper is from Scenic Route. I used a zig zag stitch to attach the main image to the mat and a tiny bow under the Oak Corner to finish it off. I also embossed Gobble Gobble to make it stand out more on the patterned paper.

You can get your High Hopes stamps here for the U.S. or here and here...and you can also check the blog for more retailer listings!

I hope you will join us and play along with this weeks fun challenge. Make sure you head over to the High Hopes blog for details and to check out the Diva's awesome creations this week! Enjoy your Labor Day weekend!
